qualities in so many ways. i know the authority will be well served, the entire city and county of san francisco will be well served, especially important as we are going to this transition, as we will find a new, who knows, a permanent executive director that we have that continuity. it is my honor to nominate commissioner john avalos as chair before you. is there a second? seconded by commissioner weiner. any other nominations for chair? seeing none, why don't we open it up to public comment. any member of other public like to speak on this nomination or election please come forward. >> again, every year we give an opportunity to one of you supervisors, to represent our city. i would like to offer a suggestion. the focus on the seniors. i even attended a meeting in our district with ms. abner james, so you know i am doing due diligence. she happens to be the chair the senior commission. the seniors in our city need some extra help when it comes to transportation. simple things like even getting a clipper card; notices have been sent; when the seniors go to [indiscernible] wai

an opportunity to one of you supervisors, to represent our city. i would like to offer a suggestion. the focus on the seniors. i even attended a meeting in our district with ms. abner james, so you know i am doing due diligence. she happens to be the chair the senior commission. the seniors in our city need some extra help when it comes to transportation. simple things like even getting a clipper card; notices have been sent; when the seniors go to [indiscernible] wait in line, sent to 27a, assigned again to 11s to find out that is where they can get a clipper cart. little things like that. you may think this comes under the jurisdiction of the mta; it comes under the jurisdiction of all supervisors so they represent seniors fairly. i hope in general of having a strategy to improve traffic flow now that you will attend to that. i will be attending some of the meetings, not all of the meetings. to remind you again again what is best for our city. thank you very much. >> thank you. any other member of the public alike to speak on this item? so please come forward. >> good morning, my name

understanding of the shortcomings of the cities transportation for structure. i am a member of the regional board governs caltrain. in determining the future of the regions transportation agencies, i want to talk about the imperative things that the next chair will have the sole responsibility of seeing - of being a steward to get it done recognizing the inequities that have existed in our transportation expenditures. i want to make sure our need is lined -- our resources i lined up where our needs are. working with ntc and bart, to make sure that we are planning on the modernization of the regional transit lines and looking for smart ways to expand transportation in our city. it is important to leverage the local sales tax dollars to complement and support of the city funded infrastructure investment coming from voter approved initiatives such as the street bond that we all i think worked on. working in tandem with mta to deliver pedestrian safety, traffic calming and other improvements faster and more efficiently and very fair and process to select our executive director. i believe

happened to talk to a young friend who was very -- who is very involved in city administration, and whom i had not seen for a while. and he said to me, why shouldn't you tell your story? i have worked in our community through the years primarily through my job at kaiser permanente. i have also worked with the kaiser african-american health initiative which was formed to go out into the community to educate and promote healthy habits. the california transplant donor network also, i did many seminars at churches to encourage donor -- donation of tissue and organses. and a lot of my work has been done through my organization, the the san francisco chapter of the links incorporated which is a national organization of women dedicated to friendship and giving service in the local community. and it was during my tenure as president that i collaborated all these groups together and we work primarily in the bayview hunters point area. whether my volunteering and community service has been professional or as a volunteer, i always strive to focus meeting people where they were and seeing them for who
